Guns for Hire......

 Linux systems administrator: gun for hire

I'm a contract Linux systems administrator with 9 years of experience
working with startup companies. My main areas of expertise are in
scalability, high availability and monitoring. Most recently I've been
working with Songkick.com to put in place a new architecture on which we
launched the new version of their site. Before that, I was with Trutap
where we built a scalable platform for mobile social networking.

I'm looking for new challenges with interesting companies. I tend to add
the most value to companies who have an established website built, and
who are expecting a period of growth - taking an existing site, and
building a systems architecture which is fault-tolerant and scalable; as
well as ensuring development staff have access to a development and
staging environment that closely resembles production.

      \* Can one of your servers go down without any interruption to
        service?
      \* Can you handle 10x your current load on your existing platform?
      \* Do you know how you'd grow your infrastructure to cope with 100x
        your current load?
      \* If something goes wrong on your platform, do you know about it
        before your users do?

If your answers to the above are either "no" or "I don't know", then
drop me a line - it's likely that I can help.. - jon@topper.me.uk

FREE WEBINAR on Project Darkstar - MMOG Putting the "Massive" in Massive Multiplayer

FREE Darkstar Webinar on Wednesday, June 24th, 8:00am PDT / 4:00pm GMT. Reserve your seat here: Project Darkstar

The video games industry represents one of the largest entertainment industries in the world, and online games is its fastest growing segment. With this extraordinary growth comes the issue of building truly scalable, “massive multiplayer” solutions that are beyond what the industry deploys today. 

In this FREE webinar, Matt Hosanee will discuss how Sun's Project Darkstar meets many of the biggest challenges facing the development of future online games.  Project Darkstar is an open source platform for developing massively multiplayer online games.  It brings the same enterprise level scalability, performance, persistence, and data integrity that Sun's corporate clients enjoy.  It also provides new business opportunities because it is game and client agnostic, so browser, desktop, and console clients can play together.  

The presentation will be followed by your chance to ask specific questions on how Project Darkstar fits into your overall strategy.

We hope to see you at the live event!

P.S. Can make the live event? Sign up anyway and we'll send you a link to the replay after the event.
